Most of us can trace the shape of our lives back to a physical place--a childhood home that played an enormous role in defining how we see ourselves and how we choose to make our way in the world. In Home, John Edwards has collected nearly sixty moving stories that reflect how these places, in many ways, are the blueprints of our lives. Home features uplifting, touching, and engaging narratives from all kinds of people across the country--everyday Americans with deeply inspiring stories share the pages with well-known figures from entertainment and religion, from politics and sports.

Visit the early homes of:

Mario Batali
Benicio Del Toro
Bob Dole
Tommy Franks
John Glenn
Danny Glover
Nanci Griffith
Sugar Ray Leonard
Maya Lin
Jamie-Lynn Sigler
Steven Spielberg
Vera Wang
Rick Warren
. . . and many more.

Through words, photos, and illustrations, Home paints a moving picture of America at its best--a country where people, no matter their background, no matter their circumstance, can build a great future. One by one, these different stories reveal our common story--a story that begins with the home we grew up in, the values it gave us, and the hopes that we share.
